Abstract

This article is intended to review the concept of resilience from the scope of paediatric psychooncology. The origin, its different definitions and its suitability of application in the field of serious physical illness such as cancer will be analyzed. Furthermore, the differences between resilience and other concepts commonly associated or confused with it, such as post-traumatic growth or benefit finding, will be discussed. Finally, a proposal for a comprehensive model of resilience in paediatric cancer will be put forward. © 2014: Servicio de Publicaciones de la Universidad de Murcia.
